Medicine Hat Mavericks look back 2013 and offer a playoff prediction

07/23/2013 4:00 PM -

July 22, 2013---The Medicine Hat Mavericks season has been up and down, literally. While the water levels in most of southern Alberta peaked, the city of Medicine Hat and the Mavericks sat and braced for the floods to rush through their area. After all was done the Mavericks home field at Athletic Park, located beside the banks of the South Saskatchewan River, was under water. Once the flood waters receeded, the field was left wth a covering of silt rendering the field unplayable for the remainder of the season. Their home season seemed to be wiped out.  But with only missing a single game, the Mavericks relocated to Jefferies Field on top of the hill. The fans followed with lawn chairs in hand and continue to cheer on their Mavericks. the season has gathered momentum and fan support has been fantastic. The Mavericks lead all 11 WMBL teams in winning percentage (.829) as of July 22. The second best record goes to the Okotoks Dawgs (.689).
Owner and General Manager of the Mavericks Greg Morrison says "So far with everything considered we are having a great year. With the final week of the regular season wrapping up it should prove to be an exciting WMBL playoff season!" Morrison has done his calculations and if playoffs were today the matchups would look like this:

West Division:
Mavericks vs Moose Jaw Millers
Okotoks Dawgs vs Lethbridge Bulls
East Division:

Swift Current Indians vs Weyburn Beavers
Melville Millionaires vs Regina Red Sox

The 2013 regular season wraps up on the July 29th. Playoffs start July 31st with three best of five rounds wrapping up August 15th.

The Maverick's are keeping that final round of playoffs in their sights.
